Maramures village band

Moldavian village band

Drummer for the "Capra" custom, Moldavia

Medium sized drums with two skins and a cymbal mounted on the top are sometimes used to accompany dances in Moldavia, Maramures and Bihor. They are generally struck with a wooden mallet on one skin and with a thinner stick on the rim or cymbal.
